  • Eine internationale Dokumentation von Andreas Baum

    The international documentary is presenting - besides a lot of funny clips from the best Laurel & Hardy movies - a look behind the scenes and never before published color footage of Stan & Babe and a lot of private photographs, recently discovered archive footage of Laurel & Hardy, rare or unpublished film stills, posters and much more.

    Stan Laurel´s daughter Lois Laurel Hawes said about this movie: "The best documentary about Laurel and Hardy I have ever seen".


    The film was shot on location in the USA, Great Britain, France, Italy, Austria, Netherlands and Germany.

    The documentary is presenting - beside the movie clips etc. - interviews with Laurel & Hardy experts like Hal Roach, Lucille Hardy-Price, Richard W. Bann, Tyler St. Mark, Bart Williams, Chuck McCann and Jim MacGeorge, Phillis Coates, Mark Greenhow or Jean Darling and friends of Stan & Babe like Booth Colman, Jerry Lewis or Marcel Marceau.

    Even Stan Laurels daughter Lois Laurel Hawes has given the author an exclusive interview. That way the documentary is telling very emotionally the story of the worldwide most beloved comedy team: the story of THEIR LIVES AND MAGIC.
